After months and months of researching, planning, negotiating and budgeting for CUSP: Designing into the Next Decade, it’s terribly exciting when lofty ideas start to become tangible realities.

Once such happy moment came last week when Patrick Abboud the talented filmmaker creating a twelve part micro-documentary series about the CUSP exhibitors, emailed through a few behind-the-scenes snaps from his first Melbourne shoot. Deliciously cinematic and emotive, the teaser images left us champing at the bit to see more.

In town to film Melbourne-based designers Leah Heiss, Stephen Mushin, and Greg More, Patrick was tasked with capturing the essence of what drives these designers to pursue bold ideas in their work, and do it in a tightly run, one-day per person shoot. The 12-part series will roll out incrementally on the CUSP website through May and June, taking you inside the minds of these 12 remarkable practitioners.

Also gathering momentum is the exhibition design concept being developed by Freeman Ryan Design in response to what we’ve jokingly been referring to as the ‘near impossible brief’. And then of course, there are the 12 designer projects, which become increasingly vivid, ambitious and inspiring with each passing day. But that’s a whole other blog entry.
